Quarantine Beauty Queen

I LOVE filters. Especially during quarantine. There’s one to cover every imperfection, smooth out every line and dark circle, every bit of redness or sun damage. Check my filter highlights on IG for my favorites. HOWEVER, I’m also clear on the fact I will one day (hopefully soon!!) have to emerge from beneath these facades of perfection and show my true face to the world, on the other side of the screen. And you will too. Are you ready?

Cause, I am not. AT ALL. I'm still using filters and facetune. Like many of you. Don't lie. So I brought my esthetician friend, Kenna Marie, on the podcast to talk about how we can make our skin look as perfect as the filtered version we've been showing off on IG. Her skin is FLAWLESS. Without makeup. And all of her long time clients have flawless skin as well. I used to be jealous, but now I'm feeling inspired. She also gives the best facials and peels, so if you live in the Seattle area or Eastside I highly recommend. You can contact Kenna directly via text (360) 319-6437
